Germanic shields in Dorset church

Postby Jeremy Fox » 20 Jan 2019, 23:36

In the church of St Mary, in the hamlet of Almer in Dorset, England, there is a window which has panels made up of fragments of stained glass, possibly sixteenth century. Some of the fragments show portions of text in German. There are also two coats of arms, possibly German or Swiss. The only description I have seen of them suggests that one is the latter.


Does anyone recognise them? (And no, one looks like, but is not, the coat of arms of the city of Portsmouth, England.)

Two surnames are mentioned in Großes Wappen Bilder Lexikon by Ottfried Neubecker: OEHME (with a crown and an open helmet) and SIMON.The star and the crescent are in the same positions on both the shields and in the crests. But I can give no colors.

Ah, thanks.
I have browsed through the Zurich roll and Siebmacher's book (both online) without finding any exact match.
